Menstrual Cycle Day 28

54 Comments
What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining until the placenta takes over. The zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing larger every day. The amounts of hCG are increasing, and are high enough to result in a positive pregnancy test. If conception did not occur, the amount of progesterone being released begins to drop due to the corpus luteum dying. The lining may begin to slough off.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline and may even steadily rise higher. Cervix may be low, firm and closed, or slightly raised and softer. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy. You may experience bloating or water retention. You may experience a headache. You may have to urinate frequently and may or may not experience food cravings/aversions and fatigue. If conception did not occur your basal body temperature may be dropping down due to the corpus luteum dying. Cervical fluid may be creamy to watery and tan in color. You may have water retention, headache, moodiness, spotting and cramps. You may have bleeding start making this day 1 of a new cycle.

If you had jelly like discharge on the 24th day of your 26 day menstrual cycle, does it show you are ovulating on that day?

Hi. we are trying to get pregnant. we have 1 daughter and have had 3 miscarriages. 2 of them at 13 and 14weeks. had cramps last week which i am praying were implantation cramps. my period was due today. cramps all day but nothing yet. i always start on a sunday morning as have a regular 28 day cycle since my last miscarriage in january. will test in the morning if i haven't come on by then... fingers crossed.

Vomitting, fever, headache are common to menstruation as well. i am not a doctor but in the same boat of getting pregnant.

I have a normal 30cd. i'm on cd26 with cramping for 4 days and today i started with light bleeding. i've been light headed for the last couple days. i did do hcg blood test 2 days ago came back neg, yes, i know it might have been to early to test even though it was a blood test. i've also been running a moderate temp from 99 to 99.5 for 9 days. i'm so confused.

Guest Jun 3, 2017 08:38:02 PM ET

Blood test negative means u r not pregnant. blood test will have high level hcg measures and mostly it's never false report.
